Special Collections & Archives (SC&A) is hosting a reception in Fenwick Library (Fairfax campus) on Thursday, February 27, 1 to 2 pm, for its new exhibitionfeaturing archived materials from George Mason University’s student newspapers. Divided into two parts, the displays of What’s in a Name? and Broadside Images in Context, the display draws on materials from the University Archives’ student newspaper collection and the George Mason University Broadside Photograph collection.
What’s in a Name? explores the history of Mason’s student newspaper, focusing on the changes in the names of the paper: The Gunston Ledger (1963 – 1969), Broadside (1969 – 2013), and Fourth Estate (2013 – present). Broadside Images in Context explores Broadside through the eyes of seven student photographers, using images from the 1970s. What’s in a Name? and Broadside Photographs in Context are on view in Fenwick Library, 2nd Floor, Wings A and C, until April 2014.
